Joe Rafferty sent the ball into his own net inside the opening second of the game and Ben Wiles doubled the Miller lead in the second half before Ched Evans pulled a goal back for PNE.
Here's how the players fared on the day...
1. Daniel Iversen - 6
Made some smart saves, though they were the type you would expect him to make. Seemed a little hesitant at times which may be down to his new defence whilst things are still new.
2. Joe Rafferty - 5
A poor game for the PNE right back where at times even simple balls down the line proved difficult. The own goal can't be put against him too much, these things happen as a defender.
3. Paul Huntington - 6
Seemed a bit off it compared to his recent games, not commanding or winning the majority of his duels. May also be while he settles into the new defence, didn't reach 300 games through luck.
4. Liam Lindsay - 6
Looked rusty at times, given that they were his first minutes this campaign. Good for him to get 90 under his belt to build from.
